There are a lot of apts like that in Bradenton; when I first moved from my mom's house I lived in one that had painted cinderblocks on the inside; didn't stay there too long; I hated the place it was right of US41 and even back then it was a haven for those working the oldest occupation in the history of mankind. I just noticed that Bradenton has definetly changed even more and it doesn't appear to be for the better; even more run down.

Counting calories YIKES, my breakfast was a good ole southern meal - biscuitsngravy; eggs, bacon, breakfast taters, yummm.
but that was at 10:00 am - will hold out for dinner until late to make up for being BAD.

what did i miss?? well my guess is that if something got removed it may have been considered a personal attack. seems that some folks take things very personal, but i have never seen it here. i have had comments like DUH! tossed my way that put me in attack mode elsewhere, but believe it or not i can behave in public. never felt the need to hold back in here, for some strange reason insane people just get along i think the staff here does a great job keeping things running smooth

Biscuits n gravy with hash browns was the closest I could come. 1584 calories and 99 Fat Grams. Don't worry about it because you are tall. Us short people, I'm 5.1, eat anything and it packs in the middle. I'm up to 840 calories and 42 fat grams just from breakfast and coffee. stupid non fat latte is still 160 calories. No lunch for me and I have to hit the gym one last time before trial period expires. We got up early today and got the Wii that is a fun video game.

Walter,
Everything was shipshape by the time she arrived! She was happy to see the house was in order and how I had used the woodchips to do some landscaping and erosion control!

I remember you mentioning that. I think she should forego family and join this "family" for that trip! I don't think I could ever convince my DH to let me cruise alone. I'm good, but I don't think I'm THAT good.

I think she should agree to my way of thinking also!

Hey All,

I'm at work again.....since 7 am. When I left the house at 6 DD was not home yet! So I'm assuming she had a great time. I know she is alive and well because in our small town, bad news travels fast. But really, she told me she was going to spend the night out and she said she had to be at work at 10 this morning. I think that is about all I need to know. If she hasn't learned by age 18, there is basically no hope!

Pics will be posted when my digital camera arrives home!

I love prom pictures. Cause I love checking out the hair and the makeup to see if there is something cool I want to try. Crazysis has nautral curly hair so it's fun trying updos on her hair cause it is easy.

Big Mama and Crazysis have it made on 3CCCs cause they are bring their personal hairdresser along. I got my license in 1987 and these 80s haircuts are something else. I once shaved the batman sign in the side of someone's hair I lived in the bay area for the 89 world series. Oakland As against the San Francisco Giants. This kid came into the shop and I did the As sign on one side of his head and the Giants sign on the other. It looked good.

That's Kool Kat....I always have to pay the bucks for hair cuts, color, etc. And I have SIL's who are hairdressers.....the drive to New Orleans for a haircut just isn't worth the freebie!
